The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) has set the time for its latest meeting to review 2009 Sacagawea Golden Dollar designs and edge letterings.
The task of the CCAC is to review themes and design proposals for circulating coinage, commemorative coins, bullion coinage, Congressional Gold Medals and other medals.
In their latest public meeting on Wednesday, June 18, the CCAC will follow up on business related to The Native American $1 Coin Act.
The coin act became law last year and requires:
- Annual redesigns of the Sacagawea’s reverse image starting in 2009, and
- Edge-incused inscriptions similar to the new Presidential $1 Coins
Current Sacagawea $1 coin have no edge-letterings — their surface is plain.
The United States Mint issued 2008 Sacagawea Golden Dollars for collectors, but not for general circulation.
Next year, the Sacagawea coins will make a comeback in force, as The Native American $1 Coin Act also requires Sacagawea’s to be issued at mintage levels equal to Presidential 1$ coins.
After CCAC’s appraisals, they will advise and provide their recommendations to various parties, including the Secretary of the Treasury.
